YAY!  I’m so glad you got the all clear as well as a modified plan to avoid overtraining.  You are going to do awesome at the marathon!  I can’t wait to hear all about it 🙂

Remember to take it slow, cross train, rest, and use the foam roller (seriously, I couldn’t have done my marathon without that thing!) and of course post updates!

woohoo.. 🙂  glad to hear you got the all clear to start running again.  I had some problems with my IT band/knee during my first marathon and that was NOT fun to recover from.  I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.  have you ever tried using a tiger tail? that thing has been a godsend for me with all the mileage I’ve been racking up lately.  I think I like it better than my foam roller because you can really get deep into the muscles.

@mrstilly:  That’s awesome! I’ve been ramping up my running as it was a new year’s resolution to do a few races this year and I’ve noticed this week especially my knees have been pretty sore (I did 20km this week which is big for me!). Any tips on how I can avoid injury? I think it has to do with the fact that I switched to being a forefoot runner about a month ago and then really ramped up my distance.
